Dutch (part two)

as we approach the first birthday of our dog Dutch, i wanted to look back on our time with him as a puppy with fondness and appreciation for what he’s taught us and the many fun things we’ve done with him.

in june of last year we decided to bring a puppy home. we had been talking about getting a dog at some point, then one day i ran into an old friend at the gym who had some puppies available from their litter of goldendoodles. we really weren’t planning on getting a puppy right then, but we saw this cute little ball of fluff with his unique silver and black coat and we fell in love. after a lot of discussion over a couple days we decided to take the plunge into puppy fueled depression and sleep deprivation.

i havenโ€™t written about my new app Albums on this site, which is a little bit intentional and a little bit of an oversight. let me explain.

i donโ€™t know who reads this blog. intentionally. i have no analytics, no email subscription list, nothing. if i had to guess, the number of people that read any given article is more than five and less than one hundred. iโ€™m not sure if thatโ€™s me being dismissive of my own reach or trying to be somewhat realistic about the deluge of content we wade through every day.

so without further delay: i shipped version 1.0 (and 1.1) of my first indie app in over 12 years. itโ€™s called Albums, and itโ€™s one of the things iโ€™m most proud of building.
